The world around us activity

In this activity  each kid was handed a piece of paper and what ever tools they wanted to created with. (both choose markers here) Then we went from the ground up and they were told to just draw what they see. I asked them about colors and shapes as they drew every thing they seen and we labeled everything together. It was just over all a neat experience to see how each kid sees the world around them. My oldest child seen colors and detail everywhere while my youngest seen more shapes.(even though my oldest is better at drawling what she sees, my youngest was more verbal in what he was looking at)

Valentines day sensory bin for all ages!

Sensory bins are something you can really make for any age and to fit into any budget. Mine was made for my own kids (ages 6&7) and made from items bought at my local dollar store. A sensory bin is a bin that engages some if not all of the 5 senses. Mine did not include scent or taste but was followed up by Valentines day candy as a treat. Now that my kids are no longer toddlers but still love these bins I try to include things I can use later on for different crafts or decorating. So for this bin I added heart shaped buckets, shredded paper, stickers, necklaces, Valentines day clothes pins, and a heart shaped bell door hanger. Recently I have noticed my kids enjoy adding other toys to play time and I love that. Seeing what they come up with and hearing the stories change as they grow is pretty neat to see. Anyway I hope this inspires you to try a sensory bin out with your baby/toddler/or child, and have a good rest of your morning, evening or night! Bye!
